When it comes to chiffon the first thing that comes to mind is light and flowy so I knew instantly when I spotted this fabric on moodfabrics.com that a dress was next in line. This fabric is way more beautiful in person, it’s feminine because of the fabric content but yet masculine because of the plaid print which happens to be one of my favorite prints.
The pattern I used for this dress was Butterick B5454 which I’ve made before here with the following alterations:
-Used only the bodice and sleeve of the pattern
-Added a draped tab button sleeve
-Added 2 3.5″x 65″ waist wraps
-The skirt was made by cutting a piece of fabric 50″x 142″ and attached it to the bodice by pleating. (this amount of fabric is necessary due to the fact it’s sheer and this prevents the ability to see through it.
